Turkey Soup

Turkey Soup

This hearty comforting turkey soup hits the spot and is quite delicious for the winter. I wanted to repurpose leftovers of a creole seasoned roasted turkey. Check out the recipe on our website for this delicious roasted turkey. I simmered the leftovers, bones and meat in chicken broth for an hour to create a rich broth. However, it is perfectly fine to omit the roasted turkey and use ground turkey instead with chicken broth. The results were AMAZING!  Sharing this family favorite with you.
